Mougins School

Prepare for tomorrow's world with an education worthy of today

Un Enfant par la Main

Continuing the action undertaken by students in advanced French in Form 7 in collaboration with ‘Un Enfant par la Main’, two members of the Association came into School on 30th January. Madame Meyrieux and Madame Capponi spoke to the students about their experiences as ‘godmothers’ to several of the street children in Madagascar and, more importantly, about the Homes for these children.

By organising a cake sale at the School, the students, led by their teacher, Madame Scott, raised 160€ which will enable four children in a Home to enjoy a nourishing snack each day for a year. The students are organising another sale on Monday 12th March in order to increase the number of children they can help.

The action is two-fold, to raise awareness of those less fortunate than our students, and to engage in an exchange of correspondence in French. An article concerning this action will appear in the March edition of the Sophia-mag.
